    KENTUCKY LAWLESSNESS
    Armed Men Besiege a Court House at Barbourville,
    and Bullets Fly Thick and Fast.
    BARBOURVILLE, KY, March 6
    E. Messer with forty armed men of the Slusher party, arrived from
    Flat Creek yesterday, and caused a great alarm. Circuit Court being
    in session, Judge Boyd place a strong guard around the court house.
    But notwithstanding this the factions opened fire in the court house
    yard, using Colt's 45-caliber revolvers. William Day, one of the
    Smith faction, received a dangerous wound in the leg, and Messer's
    clothing was pierced. The presence of the guards and the falling
    snow prevented further damage. Before embarking, for their return
    the Messer party threw cartridges into the stove at the depot and when
    asked by the agent to desist, drew knives and carved the stove pipe.
